What Would Jesus Buy?

Warrior Poets Productions, 2008, 91 min.

Follow the infamously funny Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping on a trek across the country that uses farce to spread an urgent message: Stop shopping, accruing debt, and polluting the cheer and faith of Christmas with consumerism. Hallelujah!

Beyond Elections

PM Press/Estreito Meios Productions, 2008, 104 min.

To the activists interviewed in Beyond Elections, democracy is more than mere voting: It is having a say in daily decisions that affect our lives. Members of cooperatives describe the power of participating in workplace decisions. Delegates to a constitutional assembly discuss reforming government to include historically disenfranchised poor people. And citizens tell how their communities have benefited from participatory budgeting.
